This means that there should be a focus on studying what your audience likes in order to keep them engaged. Having multiple unrelated topics is another mistake. Create a strategy that focuses on three to five topics at the maximum. Your followers know what they want. If you can share content that is consistent and relatable they will be more likely to stay interested and interact with your posts.

It can and should be used to: gain customer insights, increase brand awareness, increase customer retention, engage with your audience, and build relationships with your customers. Another #mistake is found with the excessive use of hashtags. This strategy has been revolutionizing the world of social media. You should be using hashtags, but not overusing them (#dontbearookie).
